Thank you for choosing to support families who experience domestic abuse – especially at this most difficult time when the danger is rising and our ability to raise funds has decreased.

Your Sanctuary offers immediate practical and emotional support including a Surrey wide helpline, two refuges and a community outreach service, and also works to educate, prevent and reverse the cycle of domestic abuse.

We appreciate any support you can give, and every gift helps.

A regular monthly gift helps us to have a stable flow of funding so we can plan for women and children’s futures.

Whether a single or regular gift we will use your donation wisely.

Some examples of the costs of supporting families:

£10,000 - gives a safe space in Refuge for a family to escape and start the recovery process when there is no other place to go and lives are in imminent danger.

£350 – provides 1:1 emotional and practical support whilst an individual is unable to leave their abusive environment and puts safety plans in place for when these are needed.

£1,500 – means a child living in Refuge has dedicated time with a therapist to express, process and make sense of the trauma they have experienced.

£400 – provides for a mother and child to attend a Recovery Programme where children can work through their experiences and mothers learn how to support their children and mend child and mother relationships.

£18 – puts a person in direct contact with a trained listener, who can also give information about locally available support. The YS Helpline is often the very first port of call, and a first step on the way to survival.

£100 gift per month means a traumatised child learns that the abuse was not their fault

£20 gift per month from 250 supporters provides Helpline Support for a full year

£10 gift per month from 1,000 people provides Children’s Outreach Services for a full year

£5 gift per month from 65 Supporters provides one 12 week Recovery Programme

If you, or someone you know, are experiencing abuse, please call 01483 776822
